Las Californias


William Wendt (1865-1946). To Mountain Heights and Beyond, 1920.

Essentially a collection of musical impressions of states both inner and outer, J S Kingfisher’s Las Californias varies widely in mood but functions generally as ambient. Several of the pieces are well underway: Clouds’ Journey, Yerba Buena, Montaña de Amor, Abuela Viento, Blossoming of Hope, Soledad, San Benito, Oasis, Riparia, Black Butte… J S Kingfisher is featured on keyboards, harpejji, Haken Continuum, and vocals, and there are several guest appearances. Below are sneak previews of a few works in progress. More previews forthcoming; the entire project is slated for release in the fall of 2019.
